Well, I overclocked my Processor (AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Dual Core) to 2250MHz (which isn't very much up from it's 2010 original.) and I can't seem to get it stable at that. It was stable for five or six hours when out of nowhere I was BSOD'ed and restarted.

I'm new to overclocking, and I'm almost sure this processor can go much faster even with stock cooling. It's just that my BIOS are very, very limited on specific numbering of voltages and other things. Is there any way I could upgrade/downgrade from Pheonix AwardWorkstation 6.00 to Pheonix Award 6.00? Workstation is quite annoying.

If need be, I'll write down all my BIOS stats, if anyone thinks they can help me out here.

Also, what would a good speed be for my Processor with stock cooling?

well.. i dont know ayn thing about that albatross board.. but i got mine to like 2.6 or 2.7 (can't remember) at about 52-55c's full load.. then i b\\got a bi\\\t big thypoon and got to 2.85 =] you should try to ;set your volts at about 1.5 that will give you a lot of head room and the processor can handle it easily
...if you have any questions about a setting or soemthing il try to give you what i had .. hope i was helpful -trey

you could expect 2.4-2.6 with the stock cooler, I would shoot right at the middle at 2.5. You probably wont be able to change your bios to one that allows more Overclocking. I would do a search for your board and possibly find a forum for it. That way you can find what others are doing to overclock it.
Become familiar with what settings to change in your bios....the most important are your Vcore (cpu voltage), HTT multiplier, and memory divider...without these, you wont be able to get much.
